There is some controversy as to whether it actually originated in France or whether it was an American recipe. Julia Childs, in her book 'Mastering The Art of French Cooking' page 39, calls it an American invention.
Others say that it was a French Chef, Louis Diat, working at the Ritz-Carlton in New York city who invented the recipe and named it after the town where he came from - near Vichy, in France.
Who knows the real origin, but I think the French Chef working in America means perhaps both are right.Print
